Global Warming Tanka

Encased in thick ice Sparrow shivers, sad demise Flowers had emerged Once colorful, now turned brown Snowy carpet for Easter Frozen bunny dies Easter egg hunts ‘neath snow mounds Sun plays hide and seek Bunny’s obit cites “death knell” Meaning of Easter recalled Ma Nature fooled us Groundhog needs unemployment The weatherman lied Al Gore has hidden away Ice age, not global warming
*Written April 17, 2014 as our friends up North shiver.

    Even encased can we enlighten, or shall I say brighten....even in it's stillness... death, knowing soon nature that we love will soon be here finally to brighten and thaw what we long for; o dear ! though it's taken a bit longer, i can see the signs of nature sneaking in love! Have a wonderful spring dear poet friend of mine !

    I could kiss you for this one!!!!!!! Of course we need to take care of our surroundings, and I would start in places like China where on some days they cant see 10 feet ahead of them cause of the smog, but global warming? , well now they say "climate change" It will happen with or without us. And by the way, I am mailing Al Gore my heating bill this year!!! Great witty poem!

    As an outdoorsman & nature admirer I'm concerned about this planet's fate with all its creatures within: flora and fauna. This poem depicts global warming in a very marvelous way.

    Oh yes Carolyn, mankind has made a terrible mess of this planet, as we stand here helplessly. All I can do is recycle and other things to help it out, but in the meantime I will just love nature with a passion. Loved your poem, my friend....Peter
